Joint & Arthritic Pain

When delivered by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), massage is a widely-recognized, effective, drug-free, short-term arthritis pain relief option that works for many people. Massage can offer great benefits that help with releasing tension, improving circulation, relaxing muscles and joints, and helping to work through stiffness. This makes it an option worth exploring for people who are living with inflammation, muscle tension, stiffness, and joint discomfort due to arthritis.

Massage helps relieve pain and eases the muscle stiffness associated with arthritis by improving circulation helping to reduce inflammation. That translates to enhanced blood flow to arthritic joints, improved movement, and reduced pain. Massage uses soft tissue manipulation to help release muscle tension for better flexibility and pain relief—something that people with arthritis welcome.

The benefits of massage and what type of massage may be suitable depend not only on the severity of the condition, but also on the type of arthritis. Contact us today to begin developing a plan to manage your arthritic pain with Massage Therapy.
